Niraj, this is a new CVS module, that I didn;t know we we're going to
use,yet ... It's in xfce-devel/libxfce4util

Benny, are we going to use your libutils package now? Please, can you
post to the mailing list what is in there now and what's the intended

Secondly, and I really don't like to talk about these things, I'd like
to discuss the licensing. I know, he who writes the codew gets to decide
the license, but I do intend to contribute code as well, and I think we
should be clear on this. Personally I would prefer LGPL, which would
also be consistent with the rest of the project. I know you want to put
your code under a BSD license.

Olivier, I would do whatever you feel is right for the project. If you
don't mind the BSD license I will put my contributions to libutil under
that license as well. I do think there shouldn't be more than one
license inside one module.
